Night of ‘short, powerful’ TED-style talks planned by Hampstead Synagogue
The Chief Rabbi is to join senior rabbis and rebbetzins for an evening of what organisers say will be “short, powerful talks from some of the greatest thought leaders in Anglo Jewry”.
The S&P’s Senior Rabbi Dweck, Golders Green’s Rebbetzen Dr Hadassah Fromson, South Hampstead’s Rebbetzen Lauren Levin and Aish UK’s Rabbi Daniel Rowe will each speak for 15 minutes at the event in the style of TEDtalks.
Ephraim Mirvis, the chief rabbi, will also lead a segment.

His topic will be “United we stand divided we fall”. Rabbi Joseph Dweck will address “the currency of Torah”, Rebbetzen Dr Hadassah Fromson will look explore whether “holiness leads to happiness”, Rebbetzen Lauren Levin will speak about “Creating an inclusive society: a Biblical blueprint” and Rabbi Daniel Rowe will discuss “reaching the next generation”.
“This is a unique opportunity to hear speakers of such high calibre all in one night,” said Jack Cohen, Hampstead Synagogue’s Associate Rabbi.
“All our speakers are looking to share empowering concepts with the Jewish community. TEDtalks gave the world ‘ideas worth spreading’ and it’s time that the Torah had a voice in that conversation.
“It’s going to be a beautiful and enriching night.”
A champagne and sushi reception is included with tickets for the event, which are available via bit.ly/hampsteadtalks and cost £10.
The event will take place this Sunday (May 22) at 7.30pm at Hampstead Synagogue.
